SOG and ScrOG are ideal for growers with space restrictions, as minimal height is required and every square centimetre of floor area gets used efficiently. There is no need for as much grow space volume as there would be for an untrained plant to get just as heavy a yield. SOG produces large individual buds with no popcorn or poorly formed flowers due to lack of light.

ScrOG: This entails a mesh screen with large enough apertures through which to feed cannabis leaves and branches. This can be made from commercial fencing wire or a plastic trellis, or made from wire or string and fixed to a frame. The purpose of the screen is to continually tuck under new growth into a flat sheet. What would have been undeveloped lateral branches with barely developed buds become healthy, stout branches with plenty of light exposure and their own dense flowers.
ScrOG: Cultivars that naturally produce lots of bud sites take well to this technique. Sativas or sativa-dominant strains that have a lot of nodes have this feature as part of their morphology. These normally tall and branchy strains, whose lower buds may not develop fully if left to grow untrained, get light exposure to all the bud sites, which encourages larger bud growth. It isn’t absolutely necessary to grow sativas this way, as indicas respond just as well.
Typically, the SOG technique encourages apical dominance to strengthen and enlarge the main flower cluster. The ScrOG method, however, discourages apical dominance to promote many similarly sized flower clusters.
SOG: Consider that plant density is 9–12 plants/m²—and remember that pots need to provide enough root room for health and stability to prevent toppling over. This distribution allows for pot sizes between 20 and 30cm in diameter. There is certainly enough room for slightly larger pots, but there needs to be a bit of finger room for access and plant maintenance.

Both of these low-stress training techniques have proven to be very successful for the domestic and commercial cannabis grower. They each have their advantages and make the most of the grow space on offer. Experimenting with both of these techniques will let you decide which one best suits your style.
Any training technique combined with any growing method or substrate in the first place requires happy and thriving plants. Incorporating best practice plant care means vigorous and healthy plants at each stage of growth. There are a number of growing techniques that can be used to maximise space efficiency during growth and to increase harvests. However, no technique will help if plants aren’t vibrantly full of life to begin with.

It’s similar to SoG in the sense that you’re maximizing the space that you do have, increasing your efficiency.
You’re limiting the height of your plants by tucking the branches as they grow underneath the screen so they fill the empty areas of the canopy. This trains the branches to grow within that space.
SoG stands for Sea of Green. It’s a method that allows you to grow quickly, and the plants that result are smaller, but you can also grow more of them. These smaller plants are perfect for those who have height restrictions.
Finally, all of your plants will be top buds, meaning trimming will be easier.
Of course, because SoG is such a specific method, it also requires some particular care. A few things to consider include: making sure that there aren’t any hotspots in your space and raise them higher than normal so that your plants don’t burn; keep an eye on watering, as you don’t want to drown your little guys; don’t use too much fertilizer; and regularly prune at least twice during the budding cycle.
Another great thing about employing SoG is that your crops can be harvested quickly because of the fact that you only need a small amount of time for vegetative growth. After a few days, your plants will be strong enough to enter the bud phase.
So that’s it. Evidently, the differences between ScroG and SoG aren’t enormous, but they are different things, and with some modifications, can serve different purposes.
Some are more effective than others. Two of the most popular techniques are SoG and ScrOG, and while they may sound very similar, they’re very different.
To start the flowering stage, you’ve got to let the plant grow past the screen so it can train itself to grow a specific way around the screen, forming an even canopy. Your plants will push vertically up the screen. Be sure to move the leaves to the bottom of the net so your light source can reach the buds.
There are many growing methods and tips when using grow boxes. Two of the most popular techniques are SoG and ScrOG, and they are very different.
